Louisa Carlbom won her first collegiate tournament as the San José State women’s golf team finished the fall season the way they started it, winning the 20th Annual Landfall Tradition team and individual titles on Sunday at the Country Club of Landfall – Dye Course.
- Carlbom shot a 3-under 69 in the final round to tie Charlotte Heath at Florida State for medalist honors at 10-under 206. The 206 shot by both players set a new tournament record for individual low tournament score.
- Carlbom recorded a clean card in the third round, her best three-round score of her Spartan career.
- Carlbom led the field in par-4 scoring at 5-under and tied for first in birdies made with 16.

- The team led the field in par-4 scoring at -13 and birdies made with 57.
- SJSU won the tournament by six shots over second-ranked Wake Forest, seven shots over No. 18 Florida State and 10 shots over fourth-ranked South Carolina, the only four teams to finish under par for the weekend.
- The tournament title is the second for San José State this fall after the team started the season winning the USF Intercollegiate by four shots over UCLA.

- Gyllner had the best finish of her young Spartan career and shot a 71 to finish the tournament. She was that close to a clean card with two birdies and 15 pars but had a bogey on her 15th hole of the day, the par-4 #17, as her only blemish.
- Antonia Malate tied for 25th at even-par 216, shooting a 76 on Sunday.
